Power Pyramid - Power Pyramid

Power Pyramid doesn’t have much patience for nonsense. That appears to be the takeaway from the Oklahoma City quintet’s last 10 months, which brought The God Drums in September, the Insomnia EP in January and its latest, self-titled effort in July.

TJ Mayes - "When Love Comes Down"

’50s era rock ’n’ roll had been long overdue for a rebirth. Thankfully, the stockpile of capable luminaries has not been in short supply over the past few years.

Boare - "playdatshit"

The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Broncho - "Class Historian"

Broncho has never been hurting in the hook department. The success of the trio’s 2011 debut, Can’t Get Past the Lips, was predicated mostly on its ability to marry melodies with kinetic guitar riffs and anarchic energy. Yet we’ve heard nothing to the degree of pure pop catchiness on display in “Class Historian,” the new single from Broncho’s upcoming sophomore album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman.

Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

Twinsday: Snowpocalypse 2.0


Or, 'How I spent my rock'n'roll snow day'

By Stephen Carradini February 9th, 2011

We all deal with catastrophe in different ways. So when Snowpocalypse 2.0 hit today, it's only logical that the OKS Twitterverse would have a myriad of reactions.

Red City Radio is incredulous: "Broken skylight in our building. It is officially snowing indoors. I blame Dally."

Dance Robots, Dance! is ecstatic: "boss said i don't have to work today. snow day! video games, fake chicken nuggets and finishing remixes! @katiewicks @baleoutphotos"

Samantha Crain is resigned: "http://twitpic.com/3y139m - Frozen pipes again. Its come to this I guess."

Sherree Chamberlain is logical: "considering making myself watch food inc. on my snow day so i'll stop binge eating on account of cabin fever."

Harp and Lyre has gone crazy: "Getting snowed in again. Time to watch Bring It On."

Wayne Coyne is, well, Wayne Coyne: "The snow drives back the foot that's slow http://twitvid.com/FXNOY"

 

“Master of Art” — Laura Stevenson and the Cans. The wide-eyed beauty of ‘50s girl-pop and the clarity of modern singer/songwriters. (pictured)
"Outskirts" (feat. Brad Laner)” — The Caribbean. This minimalist indie-pop affair is eerie, unusual and somehow still chill.
“Birdsong” — Powerdove. Sparse to a fault, but gorgeous anyway, this female singer/songwriter calls to mind Laura Gibson.
